Life Lesson Poem

Teased At School Poem

I wrote this because my beautiful daughter who is nine was getting teased at school from other students. As she told me this one day, she showed me how smart she really was and did not allow these ignorant children to affect her at all. She was bright enough to feel sorry for them instead of herself. Thank you, Emily, my inspiration!

What Makes You Better Than Me?

Who are you to think of me the way you do?
Who gave you the right to rant about me?
Tell me who deemed you the man or the judge?
Why do you hold in so much jealousy?
Who are you to stare and make fun and make me your next casualty?
You silly little person, what makes you think in any way that you are better than me?
Material things you may have more of,
but that is not what makes me.
I am a very beautiful person inside and I am filled with nothing but generosity.
So when and if you ever wise up
and begin to understand that there is more to life then cruelty,
you will come to this place where I am at.
Filled with love, joy, everlasting happiness and much assurance.
Hopefully you can see past all the hurt that you are spitting out.
Come on, it's time to grow up and understand what this life is really about,
because money and things don't make a person only.
Your inside makes who you are.
Don't continue to be so harsh to others.
Learn to shine brighter than that shooting star
So again I must ask of you be true to who you really are.
In every way I think of you as a beautiful person,
so what makes you so much better than me?

I was touched. No, I was delighted. The poem hit home immediately. I was ridiculed as a child and it made me believe what others said. But over those harsh years, I have learned that life is truly difficult but not impossible to get through. Keep publishing these poems. I hope to see more up! Bye! Thank you,
